Res-Net Microwave Booth 610
RF Dielectric Material
CVD (chemical vapor deposition) synthetic diamond has outstanding thermal conductivity, 3 to 4x better than copper. In addition, the low dielectric constant makes CVD diamond an excellent RF dielectric material for high frequency and high-power applications. Combining advanced thin-film processing techniques and extensive high frequency design experience, Res-Net Microwave has created a line of high performance CVD components that can withstand even the most challenging space environment. Res-Net Microwave offers the highest quality resistors, terminations and thermal jumpers on diamond substrate.

Quantum-SI (QSI) 2017
SiSoft’s Quantum-SI (QSI) 2017 release extends the world of DDR4/5 timing and signal integrity analysis to include techniques previously limited to multi-gigabit serial channel applications. These techniques allow users to predict eye margins down to probability of 1e-15 and include statistical and million bit time-domain simulation, transmit/receive equalization modeling using IBIS-AMI models and aligned pulse response analysis to identify signal quality issues and equalization techniques that can compensate for them.
